Seeing Solar Energy

A touch screen kiosk in Posada San Pedro residence hall lobby that displays real-time energy metrics as well as total energy yields, cost savings, and how much CO2 output is avoided from the solar panels on the buildings roof. The data collected by the monitoring system will be available online, thus offering the unique opportunity for students across many disciplines to assess and quantify how solar arrays perform in real-world situations.
